Sorry for your loss. Remember the good times and forget the bad. Life is too short.
What haunts me? All my life I had a reputation for doing and saying strange or weird things. I love being with people (hence career nurse) but have unintentionally hurt so many by accident.
Talked with a shrink and she described my personality in 2 words. I've struggled all my life internally but now at 67 I understand why and feel at peace with myself.
Different personalities, different people, different ways of living. Lots of people live in the past, or fret about the future. I imagine those are tough ways to get through life.
Everyone is different. Some can let the past go, some can't. For some it just takes time, for others more work is necessary.
Me, 2 things haunt Me, Democrats and wearwolfs.
I know right...
someone needs to tell that fat old sonofabitch to quit following me
Never open the box.
Care to share what those 2 words were?
At 22, I was finishing a shift at a local radio station, and spoke to the DJ who came on after me for a bit and I left. Pleasant and funny, she had worked in large market radio, but had gotten married and had a child. She was keeping her foot in the door with a weekend shift once a week. She would finish her shift, go home, take a nap and die of a heart attack. I realized at some point that I was the last person to see her alive and talk with her. Still feels strange to write it now.
A couple of years later, I was having a conversation with a co-worker. Nice guy, self-made millionaire, who took a job teaching because he enjoyed it and it gave him something to do after selling his successful business. The day after we spoke, he took his own life. He seemed fine. I still shake my head thinking about it.
Same here. We chose occupations to help people. It's inevitable that we would see disturbing stuff. I just remember that if nobody was there to help, it would have been worse for them.
That is heartbreaking.
I hope they find out who did it, release them on bail, and then they find him with head wrapped in Gorilla Tape.
Ending up in a nursing home.
My mother ended her life in one, my wife's uncle is living in one now.
As a young EMT I was called to many.
Just existence. Without hope.
I've seen many people die. Stood next to my Dad when he died, next to my Moms bed when she died. Numerous other people. while holding them in my arms, carrying them to the Ambulance, in the ER, on the Cancer ward. Just too many to count. Had my own NDE, and saw the wonderful things waiting for us.
I do really feel sorry for the animals because they always seem to know. The people with gun shot wounds always seem to know also.
How old are you? Is this something all chicks worry about?
For me it would be a friend’s suicide by handgun that we came upon unexpectedly and some things i did as a young man that i’m still trying to make amends for.
Following the law instead of doing what’s right. I was asked to end the pain in a person.
Any other animal I would have. But it’s illegal to release a human.
Me too. My Dad.
There is a lot of pain in this thread.
There was a bit of therapy for me to write some thoughts here.
